I have three kids. I have seizures and they have gooten worse over the past few months. They are ashamed to go anywhere with me in case I might have one. I love my kids, but don't want to embarrass them. They don't even want their friends to come over anymore. They want to go to their house. Their ages are 10, 12 and 14. Any suggestions?

I dont think they are ashamed of you, they love you no matter what. I think they are feeling scared in a public setting b/c you stated that the seizures are getting worse. Unless I had a full education on seizures I would probably feel the same way as they do, powerless. Start by talking to them about the seizures, what happens to your body, how they can help you and make them feel empowered to be with you when a seizure happens,,,hugs to you hon!
